"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12


What can artefacts from the Stone Age tell us about how people lived during the different periods?

To discover things about prehistory, archaeologists and historians study objects that they find from the past. In this lesson we will look at some of these artefacts and try and work out what clues they give us about how people lived. Click here to begin the lesson.

You can also go back in time to find out all about how tools were made using a process called 'flint knapping' by watching the video below. If you are able to, why not have a go at making your own stone age tools? (Ask a grown up to help you!) 

You might also have heard in the news recently that new excavations at Stonehenge (in preparation for creating a tunnel underneath the site) have unearthed lots of new Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts! You can read about it in the Stonehenge blog here.
